Many women ponder whether staying home with their children after childbirth is the best decision. Also, there are other women who believe it is in the child’s best interest if the parents are working full-time while someone else is tending to their every need. The ultimate decision will vary depending on the situation, especially financially; of the mother or parents at the time they conceive their child. The debate of working mothers versus stay-at-home mothers has been a topic which many people have different views about. This paper will highlight the many perspectives of stay-at-home moms and how they feel adamant about being their child’s sole provider in every aspect of their lives.
It is common knowledge that a parent is considered the most efficient caregiver for their children. It’s also known that with daily responsibilities of caring for a child financially, parents partake in full-time and/or part-time employment. While needing to do so, many children attend daycare/preschool facilities. Granted, it is the parent’s responsibility to cautiously select where they decide to take their children. This is because parents know that while they are away for numerous hours of the day, their children are in the hands of another care provider and that their care would have an enormous impact on their children.
Women were left with one option and that was placing their children into daycares, whether it was beneficial or not, so they could work. Now in the article, How Early Child Care Affects Later Development, the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development administrated a study to conclude if long term child care effects a child’s cognitive and social-emotional development.

Unfortunately, all families have barriers and may not be able to attend parenting classes to receive the education that may be necessary before the birth of their child. At that point, it then becomes the nurse’s responsibility to recognize the impairment, put interventions into place, and evaluate the family before discharge. For successful childrearing, parents need knowledge about raising children. Parenting classes and health-care professionals working with parents can contribute to raising children (Campbell,1992).
In today’s world women find themselves and their choices they make under much scrutiny. “With more women currently in the workforce than ever before, fewer children are being raised by stay-at home mothers and more are spending prolonged hours at childcare facilities” (Working Mothers: Cognitive and Behavioral Effects on Children, P75) This is a drastic change from women who were taught that their job in life was to raise their children at home. Today these women are the minority and there has been research in which their children do not benefit from them being home. This is a great change from when people thought children of stay-at-home mothers thrived in that environment. “In the United States today, more than half of mothers with young children work, compared to 30 percent in the 1970’s” (American Academy of Pediatrics, 1999).
Our parents sacrifices a lot of things for us in their life so, children can show their love and gratitude for elderly parents by taken care of them. Another reason is that aging parents need better care which they only get at home because only their children know their parent habits; thus they can give them appropriate care. If we send them to a nursing home, they will not feel comfortable.

In conclusion, children who want to see their aging parents happy, they always try to give their parent best atmosphere .Which they only can get at home .However, children should think about their aging parents what do they really want?
So along came another idea that has changed the way the working world views working mothers. In many offices around the country, women, and some men, are now allowed to bring their newborns to the office with them. This enables women to cut short their maternity leave, thus saving their employers money, and letting them raise their own child instead of handing that responsibility off to strangers. The idea of letting women bring their baby to work is a radically new one. Its existence shows how far people are willing to go to have it all.
These sixty mothers went through an observation with their child to understand how their interaction was during a planned task. This observation was performed in order to comprehend if infants/toddlers were at higher risk of having security attachment issues in a daycare and parents not being involved, which proved not to be true. Although, more research needs to be studied to find out further about the significance of child care and attachment securities. I chose this journal because I myself wanted to see if the findings were true about mothers and the way they interact with their children. I too believed that it was truthful about how they considered the mothers could not have been fair in answering the Attachment Q-Set (AQS).
